The first issue of Fenway News hit the streets in March of 1974 and has been coming out every month (with a couple of exceptions) ever since. It was started by a trio of neighborhood organizers who were working to increase effective neighborhood opposition to urban renewal – specifically to a Fenway Urban Renewal plan that would take private property by eminent domain and turn it over to developers.
One of the lasting legacies of that group of activists is the Citizen Advisory Councils that must be set up for every project supervised by the Boston Redevelopment Authority.
We are a community newspaper, supported primarily by volunteer efforts. Should you have any interest in contributing to these efforts– from covering a story to aiding with website design or management– we’d be grateful to have you join us!
